Dirk Homuth

Dirk grew up in Magdeburg, a town in the former East Germany, and came to Berlin shortly before the wall came down in 1989. Dirk’s early passion for Broadway standards foreshadowed the division of labor between composer and lyricist (as is common in that genre) that would develop years later in Almost Charlie — bringing to mind classic songwriting teams like Burt Bacharach/Hal David and Elton John/Bernie Taupin.

Once in Berlin, Dirk played guitar in several jazz groups, before forming Almost Charlie in 2003. Since then Homuth and lyricist Charlie Mason have released 3 albums, including the 2013 “Tommorow’s Yesterday”.
